Lower engine mounts are the same for all V8's - not too sure about the uppers.

Radiator should work out OK, but may need different hoses.

Exhaust (front part anyway) will need to be changed, as engine pipes to Windsor are different.

If fitting extractors, you may get clearance problems between the RH bank and the steering box (although this often depends on the brand) when you swap to the 351C.

Just a note, Windsors came with either a left hand or right hand water pump inlet. You may need to change the bottom tank on your radiator if the clevo is different (scratches head and tries to remember which side the bottom hose is on on a clevo and decides it's too bloody cold outside to go and look) :-))
